Sweet potatoes
« on: January 12, 2014, 09:47:08 pm »
Went to the beginner's beekeeping class Thursday night. One of the students brought me a large box of home grown sweet potatoes. My wife and I, along with my grandson's fiance canned all day. 32 jars ready for storage.

I wish we could grow them here. Speaking of crop failure, that is the cause of some of my relatives being over here; different kind of tater though!
